Buddy SMB - Self Sealing
Much copied but never bettered. A real gem of a product, the 1.4m x 20cm wide orange sausage shaped SMB was developed in the early 1990s and quickly became a standard part of most divers’ kit.

Description
The SMBC is simply inflated by purging a regulator or air gun in the open end. The really clever bit is in the mouth, where a unique self-sealing baffle – or duckbill valve – is forced shut forming an airtight seal on inflation and preventing the buoy from accidentally deflating on the surface.

The SMBC also features a stream-lining flap which closes over the mouth when used in a current to prevent any sea-anchor effect. It also has an over-pressure/dump valve which prevents the buoy from bursting and allows deflation after use. Because the SMBC stays inflated it is easy for the surface crew to track or for the diver to hold aloft and wave if separated from the boat.

Simply attach a line or reel and you have a superb delayed action decompression marker buoy or alternatively it can be inflated at the start of a dive and towed as a standard surface marker. The SMBC is pulled upright by tension on the line and clearly marks the diver’s position.

All BUDDY SMBs roll up neatly for pocket storage, external attachment or stowage in the custom SMB pouches now standard on the new Commando and Explorer BCDs.

DirDirect is a world-leading online dive shop run by Underwater Explorers based in Portland, Dorset, UK. Underwater Explorers is a dive centre with a striking difference. It was born out of the concept of "Hogarthian" diving, safe and streamlined equipment configuration, using the most robust products available for recreational and technical diving -- but at the same time, keeping it simple. It is based on the concept of "less is more" in diving and acts as an equipment outlet, training facility and source of sound advice.

Thank you for the excellent service and reasonable prices! I will highly recommend your store to my friends.
